Private Lessons

Private Lessons are just that. They are one teacher working in a private room with either one student or a couple. They are designed to work with your schedule, your dance desires and your pace of learning.

Why take privates? People take privates for a variety of reasons; 1) their schedule may be irregular and not suitable for regularly scheduled group lessons, 2)they feel more comfortable in a one on one learning situation, 3) They may be getting ready for a performance with their instructor on a specific routine, 4) private lessons are simply a great way to learn OR 5) they may be getting ready for the big day and need to choreograph their wedding dance.

Diane and Johnny Martinez offer private lessons in the following dances: Argentine Tango, Salsa, Mambo, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Lindy, Hustle, Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Merengue, American Tango, Paso Doble and Peabody. They also offer private lessons in ballet and jazz..

Wedding Couples –Couples have been coming to us for 20 years for their first dance. We can help you select your music, design your dance and rehearse your entrance and exit on and off the dance floor. If your wedding is in the area, we can have your final rehearsal on location. Sometimes the whole family becomes involved and we have choreographed father/daughter and mother/son dances as well. Johnny and Diane are masters at making your first dance fun, impressive and stress free. Click here for more info and pricing.
